Local Pharmacy Files Lawsuit Against Health Plan Sponsor

A Vermont pharmacy has filed a lawsuit against a health plan sponsor, alleging the company illegally steered patients to CVS pharmacies.
The complaint filed this week in U.S. District Court of Vermont by High Mountain Corp. claims MVP Health Care pushed customers to buy specialty drugs from CVS.
According to the suit, MVP Health Care rejected claims from Rutland Pharmacy and other pharmacies owned by High Mountain Corp.

The Rutland Herald reports the complaint references a Vermont law passed in 2004. High Mountain Corp. says the law ensures fairness between local pharmacies and bigger mail pharmacies.

An MVP Health Care spokeswoman said Wednesday the company wouldn't offer any comment at this time.
